TUESDAY, JUNE 16, I9S3 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Despite Costs to U. S. In Lives and Money, Reds May Get Korea By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP> — It's not a happy thought but, despite all this country has spent in lives and money to save South Korea from the Communists, they may in the end take it over. Hot necessarily by attack from ? without. They tried that and failed But by a coup from within. That wouldn't be soon. But the Communists take the long view. A few years more or less don't matter They can wait. To them an obstacle is like a «tone in a river. If they can't dislodge it by a hard push, they flow around it and eat away at it. When they tried their hard push on South Korea no doubt they thought they could overwhelm this bv the sudden fierceness of their attack before the United States or the United Nations could act to stop them. Since they made a mistake, and paid heavily for it in lives, material and effort, they may not try the same tactics again once a truce is reached. Why should they, if they can get what they want without firing a shot? One obvious way would be Infiltration not only among South Korean citizens but in the government itself until suddenly the Communist clique felt strong enough to seize power, as happened in Czechoslovakia. Slayer of Wife And Child Gives Up to Prosecutor PORTLAND, Me. (ff) — Municipal Court arraignment on murder charges was set yesterday for Douglas P Adams, 37. who said he gave himself up after poneding in the United Nations Building about the June 7 carving-knife deaths of his wife and child. The jobless cooking oil salesman faced prosecution from a 1933 high school classmate to whom he announced his decision on returning from New York. County Atty. Frederic S. Sturgis said Adams telephoned him Sunday: "This is Doug Adams. Come and get me." Adams calmly described to police how he killed his. wife Charlotte, 38, and daughter Carolyn, 12, in their apartment because couldn't provide for them. Yoshida Offers Version Of Bill that Beat Him TOKYO W)—Prime Minister Shi geru Yoshida yesterday introduce' to the lower house a watered-dowi version of the antistrike bill tha helped topple his last government.

Won't Stay That couldn't happen In Korea so long as U. S. troops stay there. But they won't be there forever. They'll stay while the truce lasts. They'll leave if the U. S. and China reach agreement. on withdrawing their forces from North and South Korea. And it couldn't happen so long as stubborn old Syngman Rhee is President and continues to run the country with his usual iron hand. But he won't live forever. The mood of Rhee's successors and of the South Korean people themselves may not always remain so fiercely anti-Communist as now. Under severe conditions—like a bad depression—no one could predict what the South Koreans or anyone else might do. If a peace settlement leaves Korea divided into a southern republic and a northern Communist puppet regime, South Korea, once American troops were withdrawn, would be under unique and tremendous Communist pressure. It would be surrounded on all sides—except where it borders the Pacifc—by communism, in China and North Korea. This a gloomy picture. It may not turn out this way at all. But it is a possibility and, because it is. the O. S. will have to think about South Korea for years to come. Alliance Not Enough Thinking about it won't be enough. A simple military alliance between the U. S. and South Korea won't be enough because a promise to help the small republic in case of attack is no barrier, jy itself, against Communist infiltration. For that reason this country may have to forge other links with the South Koreans, such as prolon-ed aid. Even that is no guarantee unt he South Koreans will always produce the kind of government this country wants. The U. S. has poured billions nto Italy, to rehabilitate it and ;eep it away from the Communists, but in the recent elections there .he pro-American Premier Alcide de Gasperi barely so.ueaked jirough to victory. The Italian people so divided their votes, ranging all the way from the Communists and Socialists to the Monarchists, that the net result was to weaken De Gasperi.

Bridges' Conviction Reversed WASHINGTON («—The Supreme Court yesterday reversed the perjury-conspiracy conviction of Harry, left wing West Coast long- shore leader. The Australian-born Bridges was convicted of lying when he told a 1945 naturalization hearing that he was not a Communist. He was sentenced to five years in federal prison and his United States' citizenship was revoked. Bridges was indicted in 1949, as a result of the statement he made in 1945 at the naturalization hearing. Justice Burton said the statute of limitations — that is the law governing the period in which crimes may be charged — had run out. Hence Burton said, the indictment "came too late to be effective." Submerged Sub Crosses Atlantic PORTSMOUTH. England UP)— A British submarine reached the English coast yesterday after crossing the Atlantic underwater. An admiralty spokesman said it aras the first itme the British knew of such a feat — though admitting some German U-boats might have done it during World War II.

You can get all the water you require for a bath, poured right into (he tub for approximately a penny, and a shower will cost you even less. The bill for flushing a toilet runs about two-tenths of a cent. Go out and water your garden. Give it a good hour's soaking. Then count the cost. It may set you back a dime. Add all these costs up: allow for the water used for drinking and coffee making and cooking, include laundry and household cleaning requirements, and then consider how you'd go about meeting 1 your water needs if you didn't have a public supply system.
